If you use a bolt on for scheduling in Maximo I would also be interested to know your opinion.
One of the most utilized Scheduler functions is the ability to update multiple records using the Modify Work Details and Mass Update fields. As a Planner, a lot of time is spent opening each individual record to re-schedule or update work orders.
Scheduler makes it possible to enter Scheduled Start and Finish dates in the table view, or by using drag and drop functionality. Additionally, the Planner/Scheduler can change the Lead, Supervisor, Owner, Crew etc. quickly and efficiently with one action in the Modify Work Details window.
That coupled with the ability to load level forecasted PM's and view calculated costs of an entire schedule as it is being planned or adjusted allow the Planner to be more effective and precise.
What are the components of your calculated?
